The minimal refreshments include newly designed Carbon Black bezels surrounding the speedometer and air vents, with their inner rings finished in gloss black or chrome – when the Chrome Line package is specified. The armrests in the doors have been remodelled and now house the electric window switches, while the centre console features an enlarged storage compartment. From November the Countryman also gets a three-seat rear bench as standard, but this can be replaced by two separate items at no extra cost.
The same six engine variants – three petrol and three diesel – are retained, ranging from 66 kW (90 hp) to 135 kW (184 hp), with the sportiest John Cooper Works churning out a healthy 160 kW (218 hp). Finally, just in time for autumn, two new colours – Brilliant Copper metallic and Blazing Red metallic – have been added for your pleasure.
